Music

6"x6" oil
This took me a bit to figure out the floor and finally I just decided to add a red rug and that seemed to pull it together.  It is interesting that when I struggle with a painting, somehow the struggle just shows up in the painting.  Sometimes it helps and sometimes it just looks fussy and ruins it.  You decide.

Sometimes they just have these moments when they look so adorable you can't help but fall in love with them!

Diner

4"x6" oil
Some paintings almost paint themselves.  This was one of them.  I wanted to capture the way the light bounces around in an environment of stainless steel surfaces.

Mirror Illusions

6"x6" oil
This was tricky. The idea of painting a concave surface made of multitudes of hexagonal mirrors was daunting, but in the end, it is all illusion anyway!  Someone said, and I often repeat it to myself, that it is all just shapes,  lines and values on a 2 dimensional surface when you apply chemicals that reflect color.  This simplifies it for me when I am feeling overwhelmed.

Want To Be There

6'X6' oi
One of the wonderful things about seeing fine art is that it can transport you to another time, another place, another state of being.

Barn in Early Spring

6"x6" oil
This is Furnace Brook Farm barn in early spring with the hillside budding out in a soft magenta and the crabapple tree, not yet blooming.  This is one of those quintessential Vermont landscapes.  This farm has a very interesting history, which you can read about here.
